Acarospora suzae H. Magn.

Acarospora suzai is a poorly known species described by A.H. Magnusson (1929) from the Czech Republic. Suza collected the holotype on serpentine in Moravia near Mohelno at 250–300 m in full sun. Later, the species was collected by A. Vězda in the surroundings of Mohelno.

The brown thallus has darker brown or black apothecia 0.3–0.5 mm wide. There is usually one apothecium in each irregularly shaped and slightly convex areole. The apothecia are immersed to prominent. Acarospora suzai has dark blue hymenial gel in Lugol’s and a cortex 15–25 µm thick. This species is expected to be rediscovered on base siliceous rock or volcanic rock at elevation below 700 m.
